  1. Thanks for all the responses and pictures, gauges are great but you do have to find a place to install them. I like the one under the ashtray door on the console so it does not distract from the original look of the car, I also like the electric Oil and Temp Gauges so no oil or water would be inside my car with the possibility of them leaking. Thanks to all that contributed. Paul
  2. I spoke with Tony at Vintage Air very helpful but had suggestions, no kit available, is sending me a kit so I can select what parts I think that I will need so I can order. Was hoping someone has done this before and may have some info to share as to what to order. I do have an A/C shop that will do the installation, but want me to supply the Air Conditioning parts. Thanks for your reply. Paul
  3. I have a 1965 Riviera Gran Sport non-air car and want to install the vintage air conditioning system on it and can have questions of what is available for them. Has anyone done this that can give me information?? I have a shop that will do the installation but want me to purchase the kit for it, that is what I need help with. Waiting for a catalog from Vintage Air to determine what I will need to order. If you have done I need your help. Paul 559 355-3551 or 65skyriv19@att.net
  4. Stavros is quite a guy, he is a trooper and as we both said it would have been easier and cheaper to trailer the car home but what is the adventure worth??????? He has a story that would be hard to match by anyone on a car vintage collector car purchase. A loosely plugged voltage regulator can cause a lot of problems. I am glad that he got home and the car made it through mountains, rain, snow and high altitudes but that is a Riviera for you. Paul
  5. THIS CAR HAS BEEN SOLD. THANKS TO EVERYONE THAT COMMENTED ON IT AND HELPED TO GET THE WORD OUR. Paul
  6. Love all Rivieras, with/without vinyl top . Paul
  7. Nice looking and the vinyl top looks good to me.
  8. My opinion which supports some of the comments is that it depends on the color of the car, top and interior. Whether the top sets it off or does not look good/correct/right. I like the black top on the Silver Car and I like the black top on the Bamboo Cream 1965 Riviera GS but not so on the Champagne Mist nor the Verde Green ...... my 2 cents. BTW the 69* has met reserve and is going to be sold. Paul
  9. Thanks for your comments, yes those are flares that were in the car when I obtained it so I left them there. Very original car was covered with dirt/dust from storage when pulled out, paint was fine except for a couple of spots so I decided it deserved a new paint job. I purchased a new 1968 with vinyl top in 1968 from the showroom floor very nice cars.
  10. Just listed this 1969 All Original 1969 Riviera Silver Grey with Black Interior and Black Vinyl top ...... this is an original car not a restored car with the exception of a original color two stage paint job. No dents, no dings, no scratches, the interior (original) look new. In storage from 1984 to 2017 has protecto plate.

    1965 Riviera in southwestern Oklahoma

    2bbl Carburetor? Engine partially disassembled, how does it run??
  15. It is very sad that a beautiful Riviera gets destroyed one that would be extremely difficult to replace almost impossible in that condition and what about the history and families attachment? I have several Rvieras in my garage and never think that something like that would ever destroy them .... Paul
